This time of year representatives from Xaverian, including me, attend a lot of school fairs and speak to middle school students and their families about Xaverian Brothers High School. One of the most common questions we are asked in the admissions office is “Where do your students come from?” In the limited time we have to answer the question we are usually forced to say something generic such as “we draw students from over 80 communities.” Since I have more time and space here I thought it would be helpful to answer the question as specifically as possible. So here it is, the top ten towns represented at Xaverian Brothers High School:
Town Number of current students
1. Franklin, MA 99
2. Norwood, MA 80
3. Walpole, MA 66
4. Dedham, MA 61
5. Norfolk, MA 55
6. Canton, MA 53
7. Boston, MA 38
*includes all Boston neighborhoods – Chelsea, West Roxbury, Roslindale, Jamaica Plain, Dorchester, Hyde Park, Mattapan
8. Mansfield, MA 35
9. Westwood, MA 32
10. Foxboro, MA 31
10. Wrentham, MA 31
Although we are represented by over eighty different towns these ten make up over 60% of our student body.
We have students who come from as far south as Sandwich, Marshfield, and Bridgewater, as far west as Stow, Upton, and Hopkinton, and as far east as Chelsea. Adding to Xaverian’s geographic diversity some of our young men were born in China, South Korea, Bermuda, Russian, Haiti, India, Peru, Chile, Phillipines, and our neighbors to the north Canada.
All of this makes Xaverian a diverse and vibrant learning environment, but please don’t take my word for it, come visit us and find out.
